LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE: (Clear Lake, South Dakota, USA)

Grandma and Grandpa were waiting to meet us from the train in Fargo, at 2:15 am!! They are such angels. We drove through the night, stopped at a service station, Grandpa took some take-out cups full of hot water for his tea bags and we made off like bandits. Breakfast at the back of the van was followed by a jaunt out to Clear Lake where Grandpa's parents Benjamin and Selma had grown up. Oxbow Farm has a sweet little farmhouse, raised about fifty head of cattle and grew flax. Benjamin opted for 'the girl next door' and met Neko's great grandmother on the next farm. It was so great to see where Neko's roots are, and we shared a very special moment at Grandpa's parents graveside.
